I have a Joe Montana signed 49ers helmet that I could use input on.
Background on how I obtained it: My Uncle was with a company that sponsored an NFL team. Occasionally he would get to travel with the team to away games. One such game was in San Francisco during the late 80's or early 90's. He received the helmet on this trip and he gave the helmet to me as a gift when he came back. It has been in my possession since. I cannot verify myself that the signature is real, as I was not there but he assures me he was when Joe Montana signed it. I do not have any authenticating documents to go with it.
I am looking to either sell the item or at least know what its worth.
1. Should I look into getting it authenticated? If so, what is the best method for that?
2. If I were to sell it, what would it be worth? either with or without authentication.
Appreciate any assistance,
very nice item, authentic in my opinion. But I have no idea of value.
Thank you for the reply and opinion. It is one of my favorite collectibles I own. I wouldn't even be considering selling it, if I wasn't in need of the extra cash at the moment.
Signature looks like mine.
